Pluses:  Set in forest at the foot of the Beaufort Range, Cumberland is a wee village with a wealth of natural resources and a history rich in social drama. Cumberland is a favorite venue for all kinds of musical entertainers and has a reputation for hosting some of Canada's best.

Cumberland's annual Heritage Faire at the Cumberland Cultural Center offers many windows to the past. Visitors are invited to partake in a rich array of displays, both historical and contemporary. This year's theme was "Building Our Community." Many of the displays consisted of extensive collections dating back to Cumberland's earliest days as a coal mining town.

A good place to...  go mountain biking. The forests around Cumberland are traversed with dozens of fabulous trails. A local BMX track is also in the picture with regular Saturday afternoon racing.

 A good source of local news and views created by the villagers themselves is The Cumberlander website at www.thecumberlander.ca
